I so wish I was house hunting right now, because this adorable two-story cottage in Stonewall Terrace would definitely be in my top three. Usually it takes FOR. EVER. to find a home that looks as good on paper as it does in person, and this cutie is just perfect for a young family that wants access to everything.
With three bedrooms, two baths, and plenty of living space, this house has room enough for a family of three or four. Built in 1940, 5922 Winton (which is marketed by Jennifer Ackerman of Virginian Cook Realtors) has been updated quite a bit throughout its 2,000 square feet. It’s just been reduced to a very competitive $305,000, too!
Even though the kitchen is on the small side, it’s adorable and has stainless steel appliances and a great breakfast nook that would be perfect for a booth or a table with benches.
The master suite, which I believe is upstairs, has a newer bathroom and a sitting area. The downstairs bathroom, which appears to be original to the house, features shades of pink and burgundy with hex tile lining the floor.
The backyard, well, if you’re a gardener, this house is for you! There’s already a huge raised bed for veggies, and there’s tons more room to add to that. There isn’t much in the way of landscaping, either, and with a privacy fence, this backyard could be a great retreat.
The real selling point to this house is its location, though. You’re seconds, practically, from great shopping and nightlife on both Mockingbird Lane and Greenville Avenue, and you’re inside the Stonewall Jackson Elementary School attendance zone. You’re 10 minutes from downtown, less than 15 minutes from Uptown, and you’re within walking distance of mass transit.
Sounds like it’s worthy of the short list to me!
